Link’s Friendlist is a massive collaboration of 50 artists working together to portray all of Link’s friends and helpers in the Zelda series. The project started in October 2013, and features a variety of artists from DeviantArt and Game-Art-HQ. The project began with Link’s Blacklist in 2012, which focuses only on Link’s enemies.

Link’s Friendlist includes 30 different characters, but each one can be drawn by up to three different artists. From the project description, it seems likely the project will continue on throughout this year. We’ve even featured Midna for Fanart Friday here at Zelda Universe. I’ve included some of my favorite art from the project after the jump! Warning: there is a possible character spoiler for A Link Between Worlds if you click on the full gallery.

    • Hello, dunno if you are the right guy but i believe so.

      We from Game-Art-HQ are currently preparing the 4th round for the big Link’s Blacklist Art Collaboration with around 40 new artworks by fans. This will be published on our site on the 15th June.

      If it could be interesting for ZU, i could email you a insight description about how Link’s Blacklist comes together, who some of the artists involved are, and also a sneak peak with around 5 of the already finished submissions.

      The 4th round will get an own gallery for the first time since the whole LB is quite big now already and we want to feature the newest submissions also seperately from the big one to show people whats new easily.

    The possible spoiler for a Link Between Worlds is also visible on the main page. Medli looks cool with those bad-ass talons and wings!

      Just realized that! Fixing now. So sorry.

  • Heya ZeldaUniverse, great to see our Art Collaboration getting featured here!

    Link’s Friendlist was /is about 30 of the protagonists drawn by over 50 artists, and it will continue in October this year with the goal to get around 15 more drawn till next year and also get more artworks together for the already 30 featured ones.

    Link’s Blacklist will continue into its 4th round next month btw.
